Makita has developed a cordless threaded rod cutter for cutting steel rods with 18V LXT Brushless Cordless Threaded Rod Cutter. A 5.0Ah battery (sold separately) can cut up to 1,300 threaded rods and 1,200 stainless steel threaded rods with 3/8″ coarse threads.
As a result of its compact design, it’s perfect for cutting threaded rods installed overhead. It provides spark-free cuts that are clean and burr-free, allowing fasteners and nuts to be hand-threaded easily.
With one 18V LXT 5.0Ah battery (not included), you can cut up to 1,300 pieces of mild steel threaded rod and 1,200 pieces of stainless steel threaded rod.
The device can be used to cut threaded rods with 1/4″ and 3/8″ coarse thread diameters. A more ergonomic handle provides a more comfortable hand position that reduces fatigue.
With a size of 7-7/8″ and weighing only 7 lbs. with a battery (battery not included), this device is remarkably compact. When a cut is complete, an automatic blade stop mechanism returns the blade to its open position, allowing the operator to continue.
By eliminating carbon brushes, the BLTM Brushless Motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer life. A two-position threaded rod guide allows precise cutting by stabilizing the material.
For better visibility, LED lights with afterglow illuminate the work area. The retractable hook allows the tool to remain close by, but out of the way
